That is a fake quote by Stalin, but nonetheless, it is Democrat policy. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
A conservative group is increasing pressure on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to put election security legislation up for a vote in the Senate by airing ads that target the Kentucky Republican and four other Republican senators in their home states.
Republicans for the Rule of Law is unveiling new spots that urge Sens. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, Roy Blunt, R-Missouri, Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, and James Lankford, R-Oklahoma, to push McConnell for a vote, urging them “don’t let Mitch McConnell stand in your way.” The group is also re-airing a 60-second ad that calls on McConnell to act.
The 30-second spots will air nearly daily on Fox & Friends starting Wednesday. They’ll also run on Fox News Sunday and NBC’s Meet the Press in the senators’ home cities on Sunday as part of a $400,000 ad buy that includes digital ads.
The ads note the senators’ support for election security legislation.
“McConnell and all Republican Senators have no greater responsibility than protecting our elections from foreign enemies like Russia and Iran,” said Republicans for the Rule of Law legal advisor and spokesman Chris Truax.
Bill Kristol, a member of the group and the former editor of the Weekly Standard, said Republicans for the Rule of Law believes the issue deserves a hearing on the Senate floor.
“How do you defend not letting these bills come to the floor for debate and discussion?” said Kristol. “What’s the rationale for literally doing nothing?”
Everything you need to know is contained in those last two paragraphs. There are people you can count on to always do the right thing. There are people can’t count on, and then there are people you can count on to always do the wrong thing. Capt. Bill Kristol (Ahoy!) is one of the latter. He was the loudest neocon voice calling for the invasion of Iraq, then he was urging George Bush to invade Iran. Now he’s one of the loudest voices of the NeverTrump Club.
If Bill Kristol is for it, you should be against it. If he’s not scamming you then he is using you to scam someone else. He is Al Sharpton with a fancier pedigree.
I don’t need to read the text of the proposed bills to know they are crap. If they weren’t crap, Captain Bill (Ahoy!) would not be involved. Here is what Cocaine Mitch had to say:
McConnell has routinely derided the legislation and says it represents a “Trojan horse for partisan wish-list items that would not actually make our elections safer.”
There will be riders and amendments and such included, but there is one thing that definitely won’t be in any bill that the Democrats support: Voter ID. Requiring voters to produce some form of photo identification that:
1. Proves they are the person they say they are and
2. Establishes eligibility (citizenship and residency)
Is the single most effective way to deter voter fraud. The Democrats oppose Voter ID, claiming it is racist. According to the Democrats, significant numbers of minority voters who typically vote Democrat are unable to obtain government-issued photo identification. For some strange reason this problem has been going on for many years now and the Democrats have made no effort to help those people obtain IDs, even though a valid photo ID is essential in today’s society.
There is no way that the Democrats can beat Trump next year without cheating. Let’s not make it easier for them.
