Biden’s Latest Executive Order is a Danger to Election Security

Biden’s Latest Executive Order is a Danger to Election Security

President Joe Biden this week signed an executive order that will change the way the federal government handles election security.

“Every eligible voter should be able to vote and have that voted counted,” said Biden. “If you have the best ideas, you have nothing to hide. Let the people vote.” 

The order requires all federal agencies to help Americans better understand the voting process. It also asks the attorney general to come up with a program to make voting easier for eligible individuals in federal prisons or on probation by federal court.

“For the federal agencies, many of them have footprints around the country, with offices that people, outside the context of a pandemic could walk in and seek particular service,” said one official. “We want to make sure that we can maximize the use of that kind of walk-in service and have them be places where people can also register to vote – the goal is to make registering to vote and voting access as easy as possible.” 

White House officials say the policy will help “protect the right to vote and ensure all eligible citizens can freely participate in the electoral process,” but critics worry it will exacerbate voter fraud. 

During the current legislative session, lawmakers in 43 states have introduced over 250 bills designed to tighten election security.

Nonetheless, House Democrats on Wednesday approved a sweeping package that expands early and mail-in voting. It also decreases photo ID requirements, allows same-day registration, and requires independent redistricting of congressional districts. 

Not a single Republican voted in favor of the bill. 

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) criticized the package as “exactly the wrong response [to the] distressing lack of faith in our elections” and expressed concerns that Democrats would use their “temporary power” in Washington to “try to ensure they’ll never have to relinquish it.” 

President Biden signed the executive order on the 56th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday” – when a group of African Americans demanding the right to vote were beaten by police in Selma, Alabama. “The legacy of the march in Selma is that while nothing can stop a free people from exercising their most sacred power as a citizen, there are those who will do everything they can to take that power away,” said Biden.

    Excuse me…who died and left Biden KING???? He, nor the Dems should have the power to unilaterally change voting laws in this country. We need elections we can TRUST. We need to know that the person voting is a living breathing REGISTERED voter with an ID.

    I have to show my ID for literally everything. I can’t enter my companies bldg without an ID. I can’t fly without an ID, I can’t check my bills without an ID, yet they seem to think that no ID should be necessary to do THE most important thing anyone in this country can do. WE WILL NOT TOLERATE IT!

      Please, Nimrod is a compliment. A nimrod is a skilled hunter. Dimbulb is the proper adjective for Xiden.

    IMO, our Senate Republicans MUST do the following in order to protect our precious republic for posterity:
    .
    FILIBUSTER EVERYTHING THAT THIS EVIL REGIME ATTEMPTS TO INSTITUTE, INSTALL, LEGITIMIZE, OUTLAW, LEGISLATE OR OTHERWISE PUT INTO PRACTICE. There is NOTHING GOOD that they will try to do, and they have PROVEN TIME AND TIME AGAIN that they are INCAPABLE of experiencing gratitude for ANY concession we make to them, remorse for ANY of their wrongdoing, or satisfaction with anything we are stupid enough to do in an attempt to appease them. The only considerations we “owe” them are scorn and contempt.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
