Conserving Conservatism: Democrat-Funded Bulwark All-In on Propagandizing for Unconstitutional Democrat Take-Over of Voting Laws and Making the Lawless 2020 "Election" the Rule for All Time

H.R. 1 unconstitutionally steals the state legislatures' power to make rules about elections, and gets rid of any measures to insure vote integrity.

Here are just some of the more obviously egregious provisions:

3. Mandate Mail-in Ballots, 10-Day Delay in Results

Rather than reject the 2020 electoral chaos caused by bureaucrats suspending state election laws to further unreliable mail-in voting and suspend legal deadlines for mailed ballots, H.R. 1 would mandate this electoral chaos forever.

The bill mandates universal mail-in balloting and requires states to wait ten days after election day for any outstanding tranches of ballots to be suddenly discovered in Democrat-run strongholds -- oops, I mean, allow all ballots to arrive. The Heritage report notes that "no-fault absentee ballots" "are the tool of choice for vote thieves."

...

4. Eliminate Voter ID Election Security

"Perhaps most egregious is the Act's limitations on voter ID laws," write the attorneys general. "Fairly considered, requiring government-issued photo identification at the polls represents nothing more than a best practice for election administration."

After a brief overview of this history of bipartisan support for voter ID laws, the letter continues: "Voter ID laws remain popular, with thirty-five states requiring some form of documentary personal identification at the polls. Yet the Act would dismantle meaningful voter ID laws by allowing a statement, as a substitute for prior-issued, document-backed identification, to 'attest[] to the individual's identity and . . . that the individual is eligible to vote in the election. This does little to ensure that voters are who they say they are. Worse, it vitiates the capacity of voter ID requirements to protect against improper interference with voting rights."

5. Register Millions Of Criminally Present Foreign Citizens to Vote

By forcing states to automatically and duplicatively register all people to vote through government outposts such as motor vehicles, state universities, and welfare agencies, H.R. 1 would register millions of illegal migrants to vote in the United States. According to their own reports on surveys, millions of illegally present foreign citizens vote in the United States, and overwhelmingly for Democrats. Democrats including President Barack Obama have worked to prevent states from enforcing laws against foreign citizens voting in U.S. elections.

This bill would essentially create de facto voting rights for the tens of millions of non-citizens inside the United States. ...

The bill also bans courts from enforcing any legal penalties on any foreign citizens who illegally vote in the United States (Section 1015).
...

7. Prevent Cleaning Up Voter Rolls

If the bill passes into law, "States could not use a combination of voter inactivity and unresponsiveness to maintain voter lists but may instead remove illegitimate voter registrations only where officials obtain some other unspecified 'objective and reliable evidence that the registrant is ineligible to vote,'" write the 20 state attorneys general. "This attack on reliable methods that states have been using to maintain voters lists without specifying any reasonable permissible alternatives belies any actual interest in preventing voter fraud. The objective, rather, seems to be to prevent meaningful voter list maintenance altogether."

...

8. Unleash Mobs on Political Donors

If passed, the bill would require that political speakers and nonprofit organizations publish the identities of their donors. This would create blacklists for leftist activists to target to prevent their political opponents from the opportunity to speak in public, note the attorneys general.

...

Even the leftist American Civil Liberties Union expressed concern about these provisions in a letter to top House Democrats. These sections of H.R. 1 "could harm political advocacy and expose non-profit donors to harassment and threats of violence should their support for organizations be subject to forced disclosure," the ACLU wrote.

9. Gerrymander Districts to Favor Democrats

The bill would establish a commission of unelected national bureaucrats to decide where the political boundaries for various districts will be, rather than state elected officials.

...


14. Mandates Ballot Drop Boxes

In Section 1907, H.R. 1 would mandate that, beginning 45 days before an election, "In each county in the State, each State shall provide in-person, secured, and clearly labeled drop boxes at which individuals may, at any time during the period described in subsection (b), drop off voted absentee ballots in an election for Federal office.' This allows for the anonymous submission of absentee ballots outside of mail.

Note that establishment/cvck outlets like the National Review are now in the delicate position of having to pretend to oppose H.R. 1 while simultaneously insisting that the use of such measures in 2020 was completely reasonable and without any fraudulence at all.

Now, if even Baseball Cvck opposes H.R. 1 (while also shrieking that all the provisions of H.R. 1 that merely duplicate what happened in the 2020 election are bad going forward but perfectly find for 2020), you might be wondering, what kind of a complete grifter would claim to be "conservative" and support this Stacy Abrams Wet Dream?

Well, enter sister organization of The Lincoln Project, The Bulwark.

And who are The Bulwark's new conservatively-conserving writers?

Well, one's an Obama aide, though they avoid saying "Obama" and just say "the President."

Justin Florence is Co-Founder and Legal Director of Protect Democracy. He previously served in the Office of the White House Counsel as Special Assistant to the President and Associate Counsel to the President.

That well-conserved conservative also worked for ultrapartisan Democrat Senator Sheldon Whitehouse!

The other True Conservative author worked for Senator Al Franken.

So this is what Pierre Omidyar's money is buying now.
