Joe Biden will hate hearing this.
It’s bad news for one of his major power grabs.
And one Democrat Senator dropped a truth bomb that just changed everything.
West Virginia Democrat Senator Joe Manchin refuses to cast a deciding vote to blow up the legislative filibuster.
Without Manchin’s vote, legislation imposing a federal takeover of elections that makes it easier for Democrats to cheat by gutting voter ID laws and expanding ballot-harvesting schemes and mail-in-voting is dead.
Reporters share Democrats’ anger that Manchin will not allow Chuck Schumer to destroy the Senate to pass legislation that will doom the prospect of free and fair elections in America.
When Manchin met with the media, one activist in the press actually asked him why he was blocking Americans from voting in the next election.
“There are a lot of people out there who are saying that you’re making it so that they’re not going to be able to vote in the next election?” the left-wing so-called “journalist” asked.
This question is premised on a lie Democrats tell that unless Party operatives can collect bags full of votes through ballot-harvesting schemes, Americans are denied the right to vote.
Manchin swatted down this lie with his answer.
“The law’s there. The rules are there. And basically, the government. The government will stand behind them and make sure they have the right to vote. We have that. The things they’re talking about now are in Court. Marc Elias has an awful lot in Court. The Courts have struck down, like in Ohio, they struck down the gerrymandering. Things are happening, okay. We act like we’re going to obstruct people from voting. That’s not going to happen,” Manchin added.
In fact, there is no law in America that prevents anyone from voting.
Republicans have passed laws to monitor ballot drop boxes to make sure no one is dumping votes in the middle of the night.
And Republican states have passed laws beefing up voter ID requirements to make sure everyone who casts a ballot is who they say they are.
No one is being denied the right to vote.
What Democrats want is elections run in a “Wild West” manner, where hundreds of millions of unsolicited ballots are mailed out and Party operatives collect them without any ability of voter ID laws to guarantee these are legitimate ballots.
Joe Manchin recognized that reality and called out the Left for the lie that there is some grand conspiracy to block Americans from voting.
