Democratic Party puts highest priority to gain ‘raw political power disguised as civil rights’

WND Exclusive

There’s an old, and very cynical, saying that it’s not those who vote that count, it’s those who count the votes.

Now a former Department of Justice elections lawyer who worked in the Voting Rights Section, J. Christian Adams, is warning that Democrats in the U.S. House have established as their highest priority to take control of elections – essentially count the votes.

Adams has written at PJMedia about the new, first proposal in the House of Representatives under Democrat control as a result of the 2018 midterm elections.

In the bill, which still doesn’t have a text available online, there are plans to let “House Democrats, leftist groups, deep-pocketed dark money, and those who use election process rules to help win elections – or at least to cause chaos,” he explains.

“If you thought the midterm elections had problems, wait until you learn about Nancy Pelosi’s plan to terminate state control over American elections.”

The Democrats’ proposed H.R. 1 is described as an effort to “expand Americans’ access to the ballot box” and more, but Adams warns it’s really something else.

“The bill is a 571-page dreamscape of wild wishes and federal mandates on states. The Constitution decentralizes power over American elections and puts states in charge. H.R. 1 would undo that,” he said.

Among its provisions:

To implement mandatory voter registration. “If someone is on a government list – such as receiving welfare benefits or rental subsidies – then they would be automatically registered to vote.”

To implement mandatory voter registration. “If someone is on a government list – such as receiving welfare benefits or rental subsidies – then they would be automatically registered to vote.”

He said the provision is there in the proposal for a reason: “To help Democrats win elections.”

“But the biggest prize in H.R. 1 is to restore Justice Department approval powers over state election law changes, known as ‘preclearance.’ This preclearance power, struck down by the Supreme Court in Shelby County v. Holder, is the one power that unites them all. Preclearance gave radical bureaucrats at the Justice Department Voting Section, where I used to work, the power to micromanage every single state election law behind closed doors,” he said.

“Here’s how it worked: Whenever a state wanted to make an election law change, no matter how small, it needed approval from Washington, D.C. bureaucrats at the Department of Justice. Move a polling place, change the hours the election office is open, hire a new translator, change a precinct line, or move voting from the school gym to the school library? DOJ had to approve.

“Require voter ID, allow citizenship verification, increase penalties for voter fraud, enact election integrity procedures or implement programs to clean rolls? DOJ had to approve.

“And now you see why the Left wants the power back.”

But he said, “Preclearance isn’t about civil rights anymore. It’s about raw political power disguised as civil rights.”

Adams noted that Andrew Janz was open about the plan

Janz, a Democrat lost to Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., in the mid-terms.

“What I learned in my race is that you can’t begin to address the structural problems with our elections during the middle of a campaign. You need to take care of those things before the campaign starts,” Janz said in a report in the Hill.
