When Nancy Pelosi wins a major victory, it’s bad news for America.
That’s why it’s so concerning that Pelosi is crowing about the passage of House Bill HR1, a federal measure that would prevent states from securing their elections.
House Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday celebrated the House passing H.R. 1, which the GOP warns will federalize state elections and lead to greater distrust in the U.S. election system, branding it as key to curbing “misinformation” on Democrat priorities such as climate change and gun control.
“We are so pleased with the actions taken by the House of Representatives last night,” Pelosi told reporters at her Thursday press conference, stating that lawmakers made a “giant step for democracy.”
The measure limits voter ID laws in the name of “ensuring access.” Access for who? The idea that people should have access to vote if they aren’t eligible is voter fraud, plain and simple.
The bill also claims to limit “dark money” and “misinformation” not acknowledging that Joe Biden was the major beneficiary of dark money in 2020.
As for “misinformation” the very term is Orwellian. Who determines what is “misinformation”? Nancy Pelosi? The media? Both are clearly experts on misinformation, due to being the major sources of it. But in all seriousness, this legislation is a threat to free and fair elections. The Republicans in the Senate need to oppose it and hope that Joe Manchin or another moderate Democrat does too.
