(FreedomWire.org) – House Judiciary Committee Democrats voted to strike language from an amendment to H.R. 8770 making it clear that non-citizens are ineligible to vote in American elections.

According to the text of the Democrats’ “amendment to the amendment,” the language to be struck from the legislation reads “nothing in this section may be construed to permit any noncitizens to vote in a Federal election, or to encourage or require a State or political subdivision to permit any noncitizen to vote in a State or local election.”

Under H.R. 8770, which is making its way through the House of Representatives right now,  Democrats aim to “expand the voluntary opportunities for translations in elections.”

In other words, they want to make it easier for non-English speakers and, evidently, non-citizens, to vote in American elections.

In a breaking news tweet announcing the Democrats’ move, the House Judiciary GOP wrote that “there’s no hiding it. Democrats WANT non-citizens voting in our elections.”

In recent years, Democrats have led campaigns in multiple deep-blue cities and states to give non-citizens and even illegal aliens the right to vote in American elections. All the while, US citizens who champion election security and election integrity efforts are deemed terrorists and publicly targeted by the Biden FBI and associated federal authorities.

Earlier this year, the New York State Supreme Court struck down a New York City law that would have allowed noncitizens to vote in the city’s elections. All told, more than 800,000 noncitizen residents of the city would have been able to sway American elections had the law not been deemed illegal and struck down.

Democrat support for non-citizen voting has gone hand-in-hand with their efforts to provide amnesty to millions of illegal aliens. As native-born American citizens across racial divides have begun to reject the Democrats’ left-wing agenda en masse, they have openly talked of the need to import a new electorate.

(FreedomWire,org) – When Georgia revised its election laws in 2021, the National Urban League called it, “one of the most insidious partisan attacks on voting rights in history.”  

The law’s changes included, measures to prevent government agencies from mailing applications unsolicited, require using driver’s licenses or some other form of photo ID instead of signature-matching to verify their identity in absentee ballot applications, and codifying ballot drop boxes into law. It mandated precincts hold at least 17 days of early voting and left in place no-excuse absentee voting, while shortening the window to apply for ballots to 67 days. 

The left wanted Americans to believe that somehow adds up to a stunning and unprecedented voting-suppression mechanism. 

Democratic politicians weighed in, to condemn Georgia’s law.

“It’s racist…Jim Crow in a suit and tie,” said Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacy Abrams

“A large step…away from democracy and freedom and toward authoritarianism and repression,” said New Jersey senator Cory Booker  

“Anti-American, racist, and a betrayal of our Constitution,” said California Rep. Ro Khanna

President Joe Biden, made a characteristically garbled comparison that ended up saying the opposite of what he intended, “This makes Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle…I mean, this is gigantic!”

Activists called for boycotts of Delta Air Lines, Home Depot and other companies headquartered in the Peach State. “The pressure isn’t going to relent on @CocaCola and other Georgia-based companies over this Georgia Jim Crow law,” tweeted MSNBC’s Joy Reid.

In the most visible economic consequence, Major League Baseball succumbed to the contrived hysteria and moved its 2021 All-Star game from Atlanta to Denver. Even-though Colorado voting laws are much more restrictive than Georgia’s, or that many black Georgians were victimized by the loss of $100 million in tourism revenue redirected from 50%-black Atlanta to 9%-black Denver.

Now according to Tuesday night’s results, early voting in the state of Georgia shattered records, including among minorities. Overall turnout broke primary records, too, with more than 1.9 million Georgians having cast their ballots, compared to 1.16 million in 2018. 

 The Republicans’ counterargument is that the legislation clearly has not prevented record numbers from casting ballots.

“The incredible turnout we have seen demonstrates once and for all that Georgia’s Election Integrity Act struck a good balance between the guardrails of access and security,” Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said.

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp agreed, saying Democrats’ talk of suppression is meant to get their base riled up to vote, the Times reported.

“They don’t want to know what the truth is,” he told supporters at a Saturday campaign event in Watkinsville. “They don’t care what the truth is. They want to talk about the narrative that drives their base and helps their political polling.”

(FreedomWire.org) – Democrats would be very happy if you forgot the real reason inflation is so high. Last year, Joe Biden signed into law a “stimulus” bill that flooded our economy with $1 trillion. He didn’t plan on paying for this new spending. It was entirely “new” money, printed up by the government.

Of course, this was a terrible idea, since it lowered the value of the dollar tremendously. That and other ripple effects triggered massive inflation, which has yet to slow down.

Millions of Americans are struggling to pay for basic necessities. Many are feeling the pain at the pump, especially those who need to drive for work.

All the Democrats need to do is pull back on radical policies that are inflating the cost of energy and food. Instead, they want to do the exact same thing that got us in this mess in the first place.

With the price of gas rising across the U.S., lawmakers are developing a string of proposals to help motorists – from $400 rebates for all taxpayers in California to imposing windfall taxes on oil companies or a sliding scale of payments that could net families as much as $300 every month…

A new bill proposed by three Democrats – Reps. Mike Thompson of California, John Larson of Connecticut and Lauren Underwood of Illinois – could be worth $300 each month to some families if the price of a gallon stays above $4.

This is why we need to get rid of Democrats as soon as possible. They have created the economic crises we are currently in, due to reckless spending. Yet their “solution” is to dish out more free money, in the form of $300 payments to Americans. Oh, sure, that sounds good, if you are only looking ahead to November. But this will make things much worse.

Democrats seem to be trying to pay off voters. Prices are going up. So instead of slashing taxes, eliminating costly regulations, and reducing government fines and fees, they want to spend more money. But when you’re in debt, you don’t spend more cash to get out of it. You cut back on spending. Democrats know this, but they don’t seem to care. They only want to make it look like they are helping.
