While the state of Georgia’s action to possibly remove over 100,000 names from voter rolls is, in fact, standard legal procedure, you can rest assured it has quickly become yet another weapon to wield in the Democrats’ battle to convince Americans that election integrity is literal systemic racism … somehow.

On Friday, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger released the names of tens of thousands of those who will be purged from voter rolls if they do not take a few moments to update their information.

WSB-TV Atlanta reported that, as sinister as purging tens of thousands of people from voter rolls may sound to those who insist on perceiving all standard election procedure as oppression and bigotry, it’s all a legal procedure. And not only are those set to be removed largely simply missing updated addresses, but even the massive discovery that information for more than 100,000 voters might be out of date is a mere fraction of what it has been in past years.

“The vast majority of the more than 101,000 people on the list submitted change of address forms to the post office or had returned election mail,” the outlet reported.

These people now have 40 days to check their status online and update it accordingly, or they will be removed from the list.

Meanwhile, “only 275 people are on the list because of inactivity and more than 18,000 were removed because they have died,” the report noted.

“These people don’t live in Georgia anymore,” Raffensperger told WSB’s Justin Gray. “Then you have 18,000 people who passed. So they are not going to be voting anymore. You need to have accurate voter rolls and proper list maintenance. It also helps your county election directors.”

The outlet also noted that even if voters’ names are removed from the list, they may re-register online in “a matter of seconds.”

OK … So those on the list who are eligible to vote in Georgia will be removed if they navigate to a state website and ensure their details —  such as mailing addresses – are correct and up to date. If their names are removed they can re-register. And dead people will also not be able to vote?

Yeah, that sort of sounds like a perfectly normal procedure to ensure voter rolls are accurate and lessen the potential for fraud.

Especially when you consider that, thanks to 2020’s record turnout, “the number of voters set to be removed from the state’s voter roll is a fraction of what it was in 2017 or 2019,” WSB reported.

Yes, it is, in fact, required by law to purge voter rolls every two years, not some twisted conspiracy to oppress the votes of those who can’t be bothered to check their voter registration status online and update their addresses.

All the same, liberal critics are taking full advantage of yet another opportunity to repeat the trope that such an action is “voter suppression.”

“We already have lawyers on standby, I am on standby, just in case we have to file litigation. So we are going to be watching this and we will respond if we believe voters have been disenfranchised,” Gerald Griggs of the Atlanta NAACP told WSB-TV

The group Fair Fight Action, which was founded by failed Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacy Abrams, also responded. Abrams claimed her loss to now-Gov. Brian Kemp in 2018 was due to voter suppression and refuses to concede to this day.

“The last time Secretary Raffensperger conducted a massive voter purge, he was forced to admit 22,000 errors — 22,000 Georgia voters who would have been kicked off the rolls were it not for Fair Fight Action’s diligence. We’ll be reviewing the list thoroughly and reaching out to impacted voters,” said Lauren Groh-Wargo Fair Fight Action’s CEO, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Earlier this year, an election integrity bill passed by the Republican-majority Georgia legislature was met with vehement opposition from the Democratic party and leftist machine as a whole, who all allege minority vote suppression, so it’s easy to imagine this move will also be met with the same hysterical rhetoric.

Of course, those same critics might remember that the voter roll purge is conducted under the auspices of Raffensperger, who certainly didn’t take the side of the “white supremacists” in 2020 when then-President Donald Trump targeted the state in his questioning the results of the November general election. Now-President Joe Biden won by a hair in the Peach State.

Georgia’s standard procedural insurances that voter registration and voter rolls are accurate and legitimate has been central to Abrams’ claims of voter suppression.

After the 2018 election, she went on to file a lawsuit disputing the removal of voter files belonging to voters who had been inactive in elections for over eight years — surely all those people would have planned to show up at the polls for Abrams and would have been entirely incapable of simply updating their registration information ahead of time, we can only presume.

A federal judge dismissed the lawsuit in January 2020, although Raffensperger’s office agreed to reinstate 22,000 names that had been removed from voter rolls in error, The Washington Examiner notes.

Voting is an essential aspect of our democracy and absolutely no one should ever be disenfranchised from doing so, particularly not for the color of their skin.

That is not happening here. These voters had the same opportunity to update their voter information as anyone else did. As for the egregious refrain that such action is somehow racially motivated, there is absolutely no evidence, whatsoever to indicate that this is the case.

Election integrity ought not be used as a political weapon, but protected legally, transparently, and as thoroughly as Raffensperger’s office appears to be doing.

Every American has the exact same right to vote as every other American — but this also means we’re all just as responsible to ensure our registration information is up to date and copasetic.

If supporting these simple measures to ensure voter integrity and smooth election procedures were a bipartisan issue, we could have a lot more confidence that our elections were being conducted legitimately.

Alas … As long as election integrity is derided as “racist” and “oppressive,” that will never be the case.

Trump Spokeswoman Warns: No ‘Next Election’ Without Repairing 2020 Contest

Published

on

By

The U.S. has to “fix” what happened in the 2020 election otherwise there’s not going to be a “next election,” said Liz Harrington, former President Donald Trump’s spokeswoman, in a televised interview.

“When all these Republicans and RINOs (Republican In Name Only) suddenly start pretending like they cared about election integrity, it’s always the next election,” she said. “Well, what the base is focused on, what the average American is focused on, regardless of your party if you were paying attention during the election, what you were focused on, is we can never allow this to happen again. And we have to fix what happened in 2020 or otherwise there’s not going to be a next election,” Harrington told One America News Network’s Natalie Harp on Monday.

“Really, all this talk now of election integrity and stopping H.R. 1, stopping the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, isn’t that an admission that something was wrong on Nov. 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7? All the aftermath and all the rigging and all the cheating that went on — that is an acknowledgment that the system that the Democrats and their allies in big tech put into place [that] they’re trying to make permanent,” she said.

“The best poll was Election Day, seeing the turnout and really the best truth because we know these counties like Fulton County in Georgia, Wayne County in Detroit, in Phoenix, Maricopa, in Allegheny, in Philadelphia. We know they’ve been crooked for decades, but the turnout on Election Day made them take it to a whole different level.”

And in a Monday tweet she noted: “They’ll call it an ‘election’ but it won’t be in any real sense. It will be a Fake Election like 2020, whatever predetermined outcome Big Tech, Media, the Uniparty want — no matter how many real voters stand in their way We won’t let it happen!”

Meanwhile, Trump told Newsmax on June 25 that he’ll make an “announcement” about 2024 “in the not too distant future,” adding that “you’re going to be thrilled” with the election results that year.

“I’ll be making an announcement in the not too distant future,” Trump told Newsmax’s “Wake Up America.” “Right now, I’m helping a lot of people get into office, and we’re fighting the deep state, and we’re fighting [the] radical left. They’re after me. They’re after Rudy [Giuliani], they’re after you, probably. They’re after anybody. They’re vicious. They’re vicious, and they don’t do a good job and they’re very bad for the country… But I’ve been fighting them for 5.5 years.

“I think you’re going to be thrilled” with the results of the 2024 elections. “I think you’re going to be very happy. We want a little time to go by, maybe watch what happens in [2022]. We’re giving tremendous endorsements … and some people go up 40, 50, 60 points.”

Trump slams ‘RINO’ Maricopa County for denying auditors access to routers

Published

on

Former President Donald Trump called out the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors in Arizona on Monday for refusing to hand over routers to audit officials.

“Why won’t the RINO Maricopa County Board of Supervisors in Arizona give the routers? What are they trying to hide? They are fighting for life or death,” Trump said in a statement. “What is going on? Give the routers!”

Trump’s comment referring to a continued battle between Maricopa County officials and auditors of the 2020 presidential election for routers. Auditors requested the routers in May but were denied. Lead auditor Ben Cotton said Friday, after trying to obtain the routers again, that the routers were “critically important” to the audit, according to Just the News.

“Doesn’t this mean that the voting was, despite their statements to the contrary, connected to the internet? The Voter Fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election was monumental, and the facts are coming out daily,” Trump ended his statement saying.

Election 2020

Speaker of Georgia House demands investigation into Fulton County election irregularities

Published

on

Georgia’s Speaker of the House David Ralston is demanding an investigation to “determine if any irregularities or willful fraud occurred” in the state’s largest metropolis last November, saying recent revelations about problems with vote counting in Fulton County merit an independent probe.

Ralston sent a letter late last week to Fulton County election officials requesting that the Georgia Bureau of Investigation be allowed to conduct the investigation.

The request comes after Just the News reported last month that an independent observer for Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger noted two dozen pages of irregularities in the Atlanta vote counting center last Nov. 3, including double scanning of ballots, insecure transportation of ballots and possible voter privacy violations.

Raffensperger told Just the News he believes the problems in Fulton County are so extensive that the state should take over running elections in the Atlanta area.

Separately, a watchdog group called VoterGA, which won court access to absentee ballot data, said last week its review found that Fulton County’s hand count audit of the November election was riddled with “massive errors and provable fraud.” 

Ralston said the recent reports of problems require a “thorough examination and explanation.”

“Given the seriousness of this situation and the possible repercussions for our state and nation, it is time we have an independent investigation — once and for all — of the way in which Fulton County conducted, counted and audited the November 2020 Presidential Election,” he wrote in his letter. “To that end, it is my urgent recommendation that your office request that the Georgia Bureau of Investigation conduct its own, independent forensic investigation into the November 2020 Presidential Election in Fulton County.

“The GBI will follow the evidence wherever it may lead to determine if any irregularities or willful fraud occurred. The professionals at the GBI have the expertise and resources necessary to perform such an investigation. Furthermore, as sworn law enforcement officers, they have the trust of the public to ensure that the law was followed.” 

Vernon Jones, a former Georgia Democrat and Trump supporter now running for the GOP nomination for Georgia governor, said Sunday that Ralston’s request was welcome but came too late and doesn’t go far enough. Jones has been calling for a statewide audit of November’s election results.

“I am glad to see Georgia Speaker of the House David Ralston and others are finally calling for a GBI investigation into the fraud being uncovered in Fulton County,” Jones said. “But, as I have been screaming from the rooftops for months, we need a forensic audit in all 159 counties in Georgia.”
