The Issue: President Biden’s speech in Georgia on the filibuster and the Democrats’ voting-rights invoice.
President Biden is deceptive the American public by saying opposition to his voting-rights payments is denying the vote for minorities (“Joe’s Latest Pack of Lies,” Editorial, Jan. 12). That is completely incorrect.
For instance, his invoice would stop the use of photograph voter identification.
People want ID to get a driver’s license, take books out of the library or go to the physician. Eighty % of the American public believes voter ID is important for trustworthy elections.
This ridiculous notion that voting reforms are segregationist, racist and all-around anti-American is laughable.
Voting reform permits for excellent voter participation, integrity and safety in the voting course of. This unending demonization of those that assist voting reforms is so polarizing and intellectually dishonest.
Biden just isn’t the nice unifier he marvels himself to be. Adding extra gasoline to the hearth is his selective reminiscence when it comes to the filibuster. He has used the filibuster to his benefit.
Look at how the president makes use of emotional and psychological blackmail to amp up his speaking factors. People are afraid to name him out as a result of doing so could have you branded a racist.
Kudos to The Post for its current editorial.
Biden’s look in Georgia supporting the clearly unconstitutional federalizing of state and native elections got here throughout as shameless.
The progressive wing of the Democratic Party seeks to mandate common mail-in balloting in all 50 states, and to bar particular person states from passing sure voter-ID legal guidelines, calling such legal guidelines a type of voter suppression.
Asking out loud in Georgia whether or not we’re on the aspect of Martin Luther King Jr. or George Wallace is pure political banter and a seemingly detrimental ploy to gin up the Democratic vote in the midterms by means of the use of worry.
Do you assume for a minute the modifications to federal voting legal guidelines the Democrats need will lead to fairer and fewer fraudulent elections? Don’t guess on it.
Increasing mail-in balloting, no photo-ID necessities and no signature verification will all assist Democrats.
The gall of Biden to say state voting necessities are equal to Jim Crow 2.0 is past hypocritical.
Remember that Biden bragged that he had been praised by George Wallace, and he delivered a eulogy at Robert Byrd’s funeral.
Voting “reform” is only a blatant energy seize by Democrats, terrified of a purple wave in the midterms.

Since when is it Jim Crow to ask for photograph voter ID?
Up to about three years in the past, I had been a lifelong Democrat. My motto used to be, “I would rather fight than switch.” But not anymore.
My present motto is: “I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore.” As a end result, I’m now a proud, card-carrying Republican who not acknowledges the Democratic Party.
And in accordance to the new left-wing radical ideology, you’re a racist, a terrorist and a white supremacist if you don’t agree with the Marxist agenda of Democrats.
The American individuals are not shopping for in. And that’s the reason states are going purple.

I can’t choose up a package deal at Best Buy until I present my ID. I can’t drive a automotive with out an ID. So why ought to I give you the chance to vote with out an ID? It’s simply stupidity.
Biden wastes his political capital on issues that aren’t affordable.
Smart Democrats understand that at some point they don’t seem to be going to be in energy, and they’re going to want the filibuster to shield towards laws they don’t like.
The solely manner you accomplish something on this nation is thru compromise, and that’s what the filibuster calls for.
Progressives, who’re the fashionable Democratic Party, are too silly to understand that.
