Two important developments this morning. First: Attorney General Eric Holder will announce that the Justice Department will initiate broad nationwide attacks on election integrity measures like Voter ID using the remaining portions of the Voting Rights Act. Last month, the Supreme Court struck down the 1965 triggers that forced 15 states to submit election law changes to Washington D.C. for federal approval.
Second: despite the Supreme Court’s ruling, the Justice Department announced it will try to recapture Texas under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act by showing the state continues to act with a racially discriminatory intent when passing voting laws.
Some of Holder’s reaction is because dozens of highly paid federal employees are now idled. James Buchanan won the Nobel Prize in Economics by explaining Holder’s actions as Public Choice Theory — bureaucrats announce policies to help bureaucrats, even if disguised as an act inspired by a public purpose.
For the last few weeks, Voting Section employees have taken extended coffee breaks, and even more extended lunches. But there was hope — outgoing Assistant Attorney General Tom Perez referred to the state of Louisiana as the “full employment for Voting Section lawyers state.”
That means Governor Bobby Jindal can expect more targeting by the DOJ Voting Section.
But this announcement is all about the midterm elections. Obama wants the House back, and the Justice Department is again being turned into a political weapon using the cloak of Civil Rights. This has become the new civil rights model. Because Democratic interests are so perfectly aligned with the civil rights establishment — in no small measure because of extreme block voting by American blacks — the DOJ is now an arm of the DNC.
Will states have the competence and ability to withstand Holder’s attack? There are ways. Whether they will use them remains to be seen.
They’ve already declared war on Americans. We haven’t done a thing about it. If we wait for the spineless Republicrats in Washington we’ll end up in concentration camps!
Maybe Congress should cut off funding for the DoJ???
Honesty and integrity in voting is what Holder is against
The SOB needs to be buried under a federal prison.
They must really feel threatened by Texas.
Texas must be doing something right!
The Department of Just Us.
It’s sad with the justice department doesn’t even pretend to be non-partisan.
It’s jut another branch of the Democrat party.
Obama is definitely moving into the same league as Stalin and Hitler.
I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again:
Ted Cruz or Gov Perry should offer the following regarding Holder:
Yes, there was a time in the south where racism was part of the restrictive practices of the government in power. However, as more Republicans have been voted into office in these southern states, much has been done to remove the racist policies that were put in place by over 100 years of democRATs holding the majority of elected offices.
For The List.
They must really feel threatened by Texas.
If Texas goes Blue, it’s over. They want to make Texas a Red state.
They did that years ago when they intentionally refused to secure our borders and protect our sovereignty...And then government aided and abetted/supported this illegal invasion.
Ya can't allow in tens of millions to enter illegally and not expect it to change your history to the point where it's compromised and undermined your electoral process.
It's why it's no longer possible to change corrupt government by traditional means.
It's too late for that.
“James Buchanan won the Nobel Prize in Economics by explaining Holders actions as Public Choice Theory . . ..”
He won the prize in 1986. Holder took office in 2009.
Important news post, but sloppy writing.
They must be stopped because they’re deliberately killing us and destroying this nation. They have declared war, but we’re not fighting back.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
