Barely in office, the Biden administration has launched an electoral reform that would mandate nationwide the postal voting system that brought Biden victory. Why this opens the door to election fraud in the U.S. To understand why mail ballots in the U.S. paves the way for election fraud, it is important to understand that we are not talking about mail ballots as we know them in Germany. Rather, we are talking about the authorities sending out blanket ballots and then having them filled out and dropped into a mailbox. No one knows who received the ballots, filled them out and dropped them in. I described all of this a few months ago, and you can find the details by clicking on the appropriate link in the written article.
Why mail ballots in the USA are unsafe
There is no registration system in the U.S. and voter rolls are kept decidedly inaccurate. Voter rolls include dead people, people who moved years ago, and so on. These things make headlines before every U.S. election; they are neither new, nor a secret. And even the German “quality media,” which told us in the wake of the U.S. election that it was all nonsense, that mail ballots were safe, have sometimes unmasked their lies themselves. While the ARD correspondent in Washington was telling us on TV how safe it all was, he wrote on Twitter that he himself had been sent three ballots, even though he wasn’t even allowed to vote.
With such chaos, where no one can control who gets the ballots, fills them out and drops them in, one cannot speak of a secure election. Just imagine if such a system were introduced in Russia that no one could control. The Western media would be screaming about pre-programmed election manipulation in Russia, and they would never recognize a victory for Putin that came about through such an election. In the USA, however, such a system is supposed to be safe. And for Biden it was, because he won the election by postal votes. And Joe Biden liked that so much that he now wants to make the system mandatory for the entire USA.
In the last election, only states governed by Democrats sent ballots by mail. And look, Biden won even in Republican strongholds thanks to mail-in ballots. Biden undoubtedly owes his election victory to mail-in ballots. Because it worked so well, Biden now wants to oblige states that have so far refused to do so to send out mail ballots. To this end, an election law reform bill has now been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives, where the Democrats hold the majority, that stipulates just that.
The US election law reform
The U.S. House of Representatives today voted 220 to 210 in favor of the bill, which was introduced by Democrats, The Hill reports. Not a single Republican voted for the bill and only one Democratic congresswoman voted against it. The White House praised the vote highly in a press release.
The Hill quotes the bill’s proponents as follows:
“Supporters of the bill said it’s a necessary step to restore faith in the electoral system and tackle dark money in politics, arguing it expands voting rights, increases transparency in elections and creates new ethics rules to tamp down on corruption.”
This is pure Orwell: an electoral system in which no one knows who fills out and mails in how many ballots is described as transparent.
The Democrats’ “power grab”
Critics of the bill are quoted by The Hill as follows:
„Republicans have blasted the measure as a power grab by Democrats, arguing that the provision allowing for voters to designate a person to return their ballot equates to ballot harvesting and opens the door for election fraud. They have also slammed language allowing felons to vote.“
Kevin McCarthy, the Republican faction leader, explained the opportunities Democrats are creating for themselves with the bill:
„It would automatically register voters from DMV and other government databases. Voting is a right, not a mandate. In most cases, this legislation would actually prevent officials from removing ineligible voters from the rolls and would make it much more difficult to verify the accuracy of voter information. So future voters might be underage or dead or illegal immigrants or registered two or three times. Democrats just don’t care.“
The bill’s data transfers of different databases would create complete chaos. Even without this, inaccurately kept voter rolls in the U.S. make headlines before every election. If all these inaccurately kept databases are now also mixed together, what is likely to be the result? And everyone who is then in the database gets an absentee ballot, which they can then drop into a mailbox without any verification of their identity.
This is indeed a “power grab,” because if the bill passes, there will be no way to verify anything in U.S. elections in the future.
The bill still has to pass through the Senate, where there is a stalemate between Democrats and Republicans. If no senator switches sides and there is a stalemate in the vote, the vice president will have the deciding vote. How she would vote is anyone’s guess, after all Kamala Harris only entered the White House thanks to the absentee ballot.
The chances of the Democrats finally taking power in the USA are therefore good.
