This State Isn’t Big Enough for the Three of Us!
Green Party candidates in the state of Montana say they’ve faced political bigotry for decades, but now the Democratic Party is taking it to the voters themselves. The Green Party has been booted off the ballot after Democrats convinced 500 petition signatories to recant their signatures by harassing them and telling them that the Republican Party sponsored the petition. According to a campaign worker, the Democratic Party called most of these voters between 15 and 20 times to hound them to withdraw. Then, after a person finally gave in, the party would send a notary to that person’s house to take the withdrawal in person. Constant calling then showing up at a home in person? Of course they scared and/or simply pestered folks enough to pull their signatures.
As Liberty Nation’s Sarah Cowgill points out:
“Regardless of which party may have indirectly assisted financially in helping the Green Party get on the ballot is irrelevant. The ballot was certified. The signatures valid until the relentless attacks, threats, and intimidation on voters committed by the Montana State Democratic Party scared folks into recanting. This type of repression against electorate choice is unacceptable in America.”
What to Watch for
Never be surprised when the Democratic Party engages in election time tomfoolery. If they can get away with such blatant election meddling against the Green Party – which, often, is an ideological ally – imagine what they’ll do to suppress the conservative vote between now and November.
Don’t Vote in Person; You Might Die … or Maybe Not?
Voting in person is dangerous. So say the Democrats who have been pushing their vote-by-mail scheme all year now. Think the Democrats don’t have ulterior motives? In Arkansas, some voters have reportedly already received ballots in the mail – ballots they never requested. These recipients got two ballots: one blank, and another already filled out, just waiting on a signature, with the Democratic Party candidates already selected. Ah, how helpful! And it’s all because voting in person could spread COVID-19 and cost lives. But as Donald Trump recently tweeted, if you can protest in person, you can vote in person. As election day approaches, even some normally left-leaning sources – and many of the so-called experts we’re supposed to be listening to – have said that voting in person isn’t so dangerous after all.
Liberty Nation’s Kelli Ballard points out what should be the obvious – but, sadly, is missed by far too many:
“Is this much different from going to the grocery store? It’s likely much safer than shopping at Walmart, where the crowds remind one more of the Christmas shopping season than a national health emergency requiring everyone to don their hazmat suits before leaving home.”
Now some facts to back up that nugget of oh-so rare critical thinking: According to the American Journal of Public Health, a study regarding the spread of Coronavirus and in-person voting during Wisconsin’s April 7 election showed that, after of 40,000 voters came, there was no surge in virus cases.
What to Watch for
The lie that voting in person will probably kill you is beginning to fall apart. Folks are getting tired of panic and beginning to look at these claims a bit more cynically. However, even as Democrats grudgingly admit that in-person voting isn’t a deadly activity, don’t expect any reduction in vote-by-mail election fraud attempts.
Washington Whispers & Other Juicy Tidbits
Be on the lookout for:
- A New Jersey city councilman and a councilman-elect are among the four people charged with voting fraud related to the May 12 municipal election. The investigation began after the US Postal Inspection Service found hundreds of mail-in ballots in a mailbox in Paterson. Numerous additional ballots were found in another mailbox in nearby Haledon, according to a release from the attorney general. The May 12 elections in New Jersey were conducted by mail-in ballots due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
