Chutzpah: a Yiddish word meaning arrogance, impudence, gall, or audacity.

I saw this trash in The Atlantic:

Democrats’ Only Chance to Stop the GOP Assault on Voting Rights

If the party doesn’t pass new protections, it could lose the House, Senate, and White House within the next four years.

The most explosive battle in decades over access to the voting booth will reach a new crescendo this week, as Republican-controlled states advance an array of measures to restrict the ballot, and the U.S. House of Representatives votes on the federal legislation that represents Democrats’ best chance to stop them.

It’s no exaggeration to say that future Americans could view the resolution of this struggle as a turning point in the history of U.S. democracy. The outcome could not only shape the balance of power between the parties, but determine whether that democracy grows more inclusive or exclusionary. To many civil-rights advocates and democracy scholars I’ve spoken with, this new wave of state-level bills constitutes the greatest assault on Americans’ right to vote since the Jim Crow era’s barriers to the ballot.

“This is a huge moment,” Derrick Johnson, the president and CEO of the NAACP, told me. “This harkens to pre-segregation times in the South, and it goes to the core question of how we define citizenship and whether or not all citizens actually will have access to fully engage and participate.”

In Georgia, Texas, Arizona, Iowa, and Montana, Republican governors and legislators are moving forward bills that would reduce access to voting by mail, limit early voting, ban ballot drop boxes, inhibit voter-registration drives, and toughen identification requirements—measures inspired by the same discredited claims of election fraud that Donald Trump pushed after his 2020 loss. Earlier this week, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives in Georgia, for instance, passed a sweeping bill that would do almost all of those things.

The Supreme Court’s 6–3 conservative majority is unlikely to block many, or perhaps any, of these state laws. As a result, Democrats may have a single realistic opportunity to resist not only these proposals, but also GOP plans to institute severe partisan congressional gerrymanders in many of the same states. That opportunity: using Democrats’ unified control of Washington to establish national election standards—by passing the omnibus election-reform bill known as H.R. 1, which is scheduled for a House vote today, and the new Voting Rights Act, which is expected to come to the floor later this year.

Democrats may have only a brief window in which to block these state-level GOP maneuvers. Typically, the president’s party loses House and Senate seats in the first midterm election after his victory. Democrats will face even worse odds if Republicans succeed in imposing restrictive voting laws or gerrymandering districts in the GOP’s favor across a host of red states.

If Democrats lose their slim majority in either congressional chamber next year, they will lose their ability to pass voting-rights reform. After that, the party could face a debilitating dynamic: Republicans could use their state-level power to continue limiting ballot access, which would make regaining control of the House or the Senate more difficult for Democrats—and thus prevent them from passing future national voting rules that override the exclusionary state laws.

“There’s an increasing appreciation,” Democratic Representative John Sarbanes of Maryland, H.R. 1’s chief sponsor, told me, that “if we can’t get these changes in place in time for the 2022 midterm election, the efforts that Republicans are taking at the state level to lock in this voter-suppression regime” and maximize their advantage via partisan gerrymanders “will reshape the environment in a way that makes it impossible to get this, or frankly many other things, done.”

The Democrats are trying to permanently rig elections in this country. All the nasty little tricks they used to win elections in 2018 and 2020 worked so well they want to codify them into law for all 57 states. The GOP naturally wants to stop therm.

Ronald Brownstein turns the truth on its head and claims the GOP is engaging in voter suppression. For instance, he claims that requiring a voter to show a proper ID before voting makes it difficult or impossible for some people to vote.

Which people?

Who are these people who are US citizens living in the 21st Century and yet are unable to obtain a state-issued identification card? You can’t open a bank account, get welfare, or enter a federal building without an ID of some kind. Here in California, illegal aliens can get driver’s licenses and some of them were “accidentally” registered to vote.

Dead people can’t get ID cards. (The photo requirement stops most of them). People who don’t exist often find it difficult to obtain documentation. People who impersonate others to vote more than once usually don’t go to the trouble to obtain separate fake IDs for each identity they steal.

If there are that many Democrat voters out there who can’t get IDs, why aren’t the Democrats trying to help them get IDs???

One lesson that the Democrats learned from the 2020 elections (and the GOP better learn) is that once the bogus ballots are mixed in with the good ballots, there is apparently not a judge in the land who will do anything about it. Another is that there is no amount of fraud sufficient to trigger a thorough, independent investigation.

Everybody knows who really won the election. We know it, the whole world knows it, and the thieves know it. More importantly, they know we know.

As usual, the Democrats went too far. They still might have gotten away with it if they had installed a winner. President Biden* is a loser. The voters are watching him wreck our economy and sell us out to China and Iran. If all his nominees (other than Neera Tampon) get approved he will have the most radical administration ever. Even stupid people are making the connection. People are more tolerant of success than failure. The Democrats got loser stink all over them.

Treason doth never prosper: what’s the reason?
Why, if it prosper, none dare call it treason.

    I remember reading The Atlantic in college. Of course that was 40 years ago. OH MY GOD it was 50 years ago. Not sure how that happened, but it used to be interesting, not a journal for people who wallow in mass psychosis. The Democrats seem to currently be in a worse state than the population was during the Salem witch trials. I think at this point they have lost the ability to switch back to normal brain function they have become so addicted to the TDS outrage rush of the day.

      The various museum mags of Smithsonian went this way a while back. I still get the base magazine because the membership has been handy over the years. But with Fort Pelosi and no go on out of state visitors I am wondering if it is not time to tell them bye bye. As it is I take it to the office and put it in the circulating box for people to read at lunch. The latest cover story is back to those poor polar bears implying they are unable to swim.

      On the other hand, I did think of witting back and saying yes, they might have a hard time perhaps someone should do an article on how they are now out of work as models for Cola ads since Coca-Cola slid off the edge of the glacier.

      • elliesmom says:

        The story about how our honeymoon got turned upside down is a funny story for another time. But in the middle of it we ended up spending a night at our own place on our way somewhere else. Everyone thought we were somewhere else already so why pay for a hotel? We had just settled in when the phone rang, and while I just let the phone ring all the time, it drove Elliesdad nuts not to know who had called so he answered it. I was working in a science museum at the time, and they had a polar bear exhibit. I had spent a lot of time observing her, and she had gone into labor. They wanted to know if I would like to be present at the birth. I asked if I could bring ED along, and they said I could. We spent the night assisting in the birth of twin cubs, and it began a lifelong affection for polar bears for ED.

        My walls have beautiful photos of polar bears. Mostly cubs. Some original art. When Coke started using them as part of their ad campaign, people gave ED the Christmas ornaments. Over the years he expanded his affection for bears to include brown and black ones, too. When we went to Alaska, he hoped we would get to see some bears, but all we saw was huge footprints and the wreckage from a grizzly bear’s scavenger hunt.

        Then one day when we were sitting on our deck here in RI, a small black bear hopped over our fence and emptied our bird feeder. We were too fascinated to move inside. When the bear had licked the feeder clean, it jumped back over the fence and went back into the woods. I had told ED we had bears in our woods. Ellie and I had seen signs of them on our walks. He didn’t believe me until he saw the one in our yard. Then he laughed and reminded himself of all of the hours I had spent watching a bear so he could have one of the best nights of his life.

        • Mt.Laurel says:

          Polar bears always catch my attention because my favorite plush toy when I was a wee one was a polar bear my uncle bought me after I marveled at them on TV. I had only seen black and brown bears and even now in suburbia am near a park and brown cubs are often seen if they have wondered to far from mom but those big white mama bears with their cubs and fishing for food were fascinating.

          I have several of those ornaments and other polar items and more than one person has noted my stuffed bear has yellowed with age. But Klondike remains a favorite with visiting kids.

          • elliesmom says:

            Real polar bears yellow with age, too. When the cubs are born, their fur is so fine they look hairless, but when their fur thickens up, it looks very white. The next year when we were expecting our first child, my obstetrician asked my husband if he was going to accompany me into delivery. ED asked him how watching a human being born would compare to seeing a polar bear born. Would it be any “messier”? The doc told him he thought that part would be about the same, but he thought I would be less like to eat ED alive, although he couldn’t guarantee it. 🙂

          • Dr. Myiq2xu says:

            Polar bears are one of the few animals that will stalk and kill humans. Most animals alive today are descended from animals that survived by avoiding the Earth’s apex predator. For 150,000 years polar bears had very little contact with humans.

            Most animals will kill in self-defense. Carnivores and omnivores will kill for food.

            Humans will kill for sport. Only three animals kill for the fun of it: Humans and their two best friends.

            I did get that memo loud and clear from concerned adults who though my love of fuzzy creatures might lead to problems. I have never wanted to meet on in the wild.
            In fact, my mother decided to try and move me on to koala bears.

            This is why a toddler had a polar bear. They bears were rather common in Ohio and Western


          • elliesmom says:

            I spent hours sitting in front of very large polar bear with a glass window between us. Her enclosure had a large pool where she could swim. Half of her enclosure was inside and half outside. There were times when she’d swim or sit close to me and stare back at me. There weren’t many requirements for doing the job. Patience, being able to make observations without attributing them to anything like human emotions, willing to work for the experience more than the money, and being smart enough to know not to step inside the enclosure. I always assumed her interest in me involved lunch. The vets who took care of her during the birth kept her mildly sedated. I never got to touch Mama Bear, but I did get to hold one of the cubs while he was being weighed, measured, and checked out. Baby polar bears are tiny- only about a pound or two.

    So Dumocraps think blacks don’t know how to use the internet and or get an acceptable ID card for voting. What a low opinion they have of one of their most loyal bases.How insulting!

    Being on Mediscare,I have to show my insurance card and ID to get medical care. Is that just because I am a krakka? POC don’t have to show ID?

    Years ago when many were born at home, they didn’t have a birth certificate to use to get a state ID. My late husband ‘s birth was recorded in the family bible. His mom used that record to get him a delayed birth certificate when he was a teen, so he could get a work permit. My mother didn’t drive until she was 54, after my father was killed in an auto accident. I don’t know is she had a picture ID before getting a driver’s license.

    Many states now don’t charge non-drivers for a picture ID. So cost is not a barrier.

    Destroying voter integrity isn’t nearly as important as destroying the perception of voter integrity. This bill destroys the faith of people who want fair elections by people who meet the actual criteria to vote. This lack of faith suppresses the vote and reduces the chance of conservative candidates to wine elections. The next step is moving to the California system where 40% of the voting public is disenfranchised because you have to choose between two Democrats in state elections.

    • Constance says:

      We have that system in Seattle too. And don’t forget that when a conservative candidate does run for office she/he are doxed along with2 generations out in their family, death treats are made and hordes of brown shirts show up to chant and drum all night in the street by their house so their neighbors can’t sleep. But since this isn’t harassment the laws against harassing a candidate for office are not enforced.

    Protect voter rights by making it easier to commit fraud. Sounds like a plan.

    I actually believe Biden would have won if all legitimate were counted and non-legitimate votes were kicked out because I believe the majority of the population are damn fools (the fact that they are willing to accept a year+ of house arrest on account of a virus with greater than a 99% survival rate and with the majority of cases being asymtomatic or mild is indisputable proof of that). But fraud is still a crime, even if it didn’t swing an election, and we certainly shpuldn’t be making it easier to committ.

    The arrogance of these leftists is so pervasive, it’s breathtaking. Just this morning, on a Facebook page for locals in my neighborhood, Ocean Pines, someone from Annapolis posted a question about moving here. They wanted to know the pros and cons of living here. They got almost 200 replies, with the usual responses, yes it’s great very safe neighborhood, schools are top notch, great for kids, the HOA sucks, laid back lifestyle, etc etc.

    THIS ONE GUY, and I am going to name him because he is a public figure locally, for environmental causes, had the “chutzpah” to state ” The area is ideologically backwards, we need smart people to move here so we can move forward.” Dave Wilson said that, in our little local group, with seemingly no awareness of how insulting or condescending his remarks were. How obtuse and arrogant can you be, to say something so insulting in a group of people who live in the area?

    I was gobsmacked, for a minute, and then I replied, to his post.I said something to the effect of how great the area is, and most people that live here have good manners.

    Both his post and my reply were removed, either by the admin of the group, or maybe old Dave Wilson did it himself. But still. How far gone do you have to be to call all of your neighbors backwards, in a group of your neighbors? How lucky us Shorebilly’s are to have Dave here, to lead us backwards folks out of the wilderness, and tame us savages. What a colonizing attitude. The superior folk living amongst the poor backwards natives. Gee thanks Dave.

        Pretty much how I felt this morning when I was on my local Nextdoor. That woman was speaking woke, I think she hadn’t slept for weeks.

    • lateblum says:

      Swannie, I think there’s something in the air today. I wandered off a little bit ago looking for a post in my local Nextdoor communication board from earlier in the day. Another example of the insanity that is gripping the terrain. This morning a woman posted some information about a new Covid testing protocol that was now open in the Great Lakes (formerly naval base) area. But this protocol was different. This one was accepting “non-white” and “persons of color” as participants.
      In her second paragraph she went on to say, “And I don’t want to hear any of you complain about this because it is for non-white people”. Hand to G-d she all but threatened people who “might” complain about being refused participation in this test. It was unreal. At first I just thought she was one of those Woke people who see racists behind every face mask. But in later posts, she made comments that were even more hostile toward the NEIGHBORS. At one point, she said she couldn’t “figure out why she had received so many angry comments” !!! I finally had enough of her “ performance art”. I said her negative and provocative tone was out of place in the thread. And that if her primary goal was to inform, she should have deleted her second paragraph before hitting “send”. But it sounded like she meant to target and aggravate and start needless conflict. I said she needed some help if she wanted to communicate effectively. I had a whole lot of people who agreed with me. But frankly, I didn’t care because she was so out of line.
      I went back to see this post before coming her to post about it… but it had been removed and everything that followed it had also been removed. It’s too bad that there will be people who won’t hear of this new testing opportunity. Maybe someone will remember and post something. But it was utterly inappropropriate. Especially the way she verbally attacked her neighbors.
      Where are these people coming from? Or what are they drinking?

  13. elliesmom says:

    This is all part of a plan to create a post-modern world. Truth is dead. There’s no such thing as objective reality. No individuality, just membership in a group. Words mean whatever the person using them says they mean. All of human nature comes from nurture. Western civilization was evil and corrupt and must be destroyed, including science and technology. Academics started teaching this stuff in the 50s, and now we’re seeing the fruits of their labors. When the Enlightenment moved us into the modern world, people fought against giving up things like the Earth-centered view of the universe. Not everything we can now see as good changes looked positive to people back then. I’m willing to grant maybe there is something to the idea we’re just resisting change, but I’m not sure where not believing in absolute truth at least being possible gets us. I can tell you exactly where the sun will rise everyday this year, and next year, and the next. While I can’t tell you exactly how long our sun will produce enough heat to sustain life on our planet, there are people who can. Will a world where men and women are not considered to have different genders be a better world? I don’t know, but denying their biologies are different can certainly have tragic results.

    • John Denney says:

      To the degree one does not know the truth, one is out of touch with reality.

      Easier to deceive people when truth is deemed irrelevant.

      Deceivers know the truth; the deceived will repeat their delusions. How to distinguish the victims from the deceivers? The deceived can be enlightened to the truth; deceivers will fight the enlightenment. But the deceived often will, too, at first.

            I liked the original in the early years because the same side didn’t win every case, but I haven’t seen it in awhile. I watched a couple of episodes of the UK version, and the stories are the same. Just a few changes to the dialogue to make it British. But what I meant by my comment is I saw an episode of SVU where a teacher was giving a kid hormone blockers when his parents wouldn’t let him take them.

          • Mt.Laurel says:

            Original I saw mostly in reruns on USA(?) when I dealing with health problems and surgery and was on the sofa a good deal. I thought the early stories were more thoughtful in terms of looking at things from more than one perspective.

            The last cast change I recall was the young blond assistant DA. After the episodes got to that point in the rotation, I would find something else to watch until the circled back.

            I find even the early SUV episodes are off kilter and running theme of parents are (universally) bad and government knows what is best.

        SUV is the longest running live action show in television history. It is a cash cow. The reruns score very well.
        I find it annoying that they have taken this very proggie/feminist stance, but Mariska Hargitay is no longer young. It’s been on for more than 20+ years. She has put on weight and instead of depicting her as a normal over 50 woman they cloak her in over sized coats outside and indoors she always has on a dark blazer. It’s normal for some to gain with age. Why trumpet this “woke” shite and then disguise the weight of one of TV’s most enduring strong female leads. Considering most of the episodes it seems rather hypocritical. They are saying she is her appearance.

      Plus they quit in a huff and the poor harried boss has to keep explaining that means they don’t get to keep the office space, staff, expense account, parking space, . . .

      I see that Oprah is interviewing Princess Sparkle and the Spare Who’s No Longer an Heir. It’s supposed to be generating more excitement than the Superbowl. I realize that’s a pretty low bar these days, but I think they may be setting their bar a little too high.

        That is getting promoted not only on tv stations (CBS affiliates I’m sure) but also on radio. It’s apparently popular because CBS says so..

      Speaking as a mother, who can remember having my youngest son strip down to his skivvies on the porch before he came in the house, when he was a kid, because he was literally covered from head to toe with mud from mini dirt bike riding, I can relate.

      I still remember the feeling of relief, of catching him before he came in the door. He, without a second thought, was coming in. Covered. About a half inch, to maybe an inch in some places, coated in thick wet mud. All over. So maybe they needed to test those goggles. For mini dirt bike riding. In the mud.
      Some of the very best memories are muddy ones.

      Oh God! I can’t stop laughing! At least it’s not as bad as the time my son and his male cousins decide to put on the dog collar and take turns testing the invisible dog fence. I was laughing so hard I couldn’t effectively yell at them while other people were staring at me (and them) in horror. Thankfully no one called CPS.

    Never went to this bar in Montana, but drove through Big Sandy all the time from Havre to Great Falls. MT Sen. Jon Tester is from Big Sandy.
