There are two ways to read the opposition to this Commission… which side is right?
Left-leaning rights groups have lined up in opposition to Trump’s Voter Commission and were ready to go to court to fight it.
The rationale for opposing it?
Some hinge on fears of exposure to hacking.
Others argue the privacy rights of the individual, and that no government should have access to information from all 50 States.
Strange how selective their advocacy of absolute privacy can be, though, since one of those ‘privacy’ groups actually sued for access to Trump’s taxes.
“In Voter Privacy Case, EPIC Files for Temporary Restraining Order”
Public information is just that… publicly available upon request.
How do you think we can know, even while news is still breaking, which party the latest nutjob who makes the news was registered in support of?
Who gathered to help oppose the Commission?
Several civil rights organizations have filed lawsuits challenging the Presidential Election Commission, which EPIC sued last week. The groups include the American Civil Liberties Union, the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, and Public Citizen. The organizations raised several challenges similar to those in EPIC v. Commission. In response to the EPIC lawsuit, the Commission has suspended the collection of voter data from the states. –Source
There is a Soros connection.
And whenever Soros (who once said American Supremacy is the greatest threat to World Peace) is involved, ulterior motives should be questioned.
The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) is headed by an attorney named Marc Rotenberg, who previously worked as counsel to super-liberal Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.). And while the organization claims to focus on privacy, it also recently sued to force the IRS to release Trump’s tax returns, information that, unlike voter records, which are typically given out to any member of the public who requests it, really is confidential.
The organization, like many others fighting to stop the release and review of voter roll data, has a history with George Soros through his Open Society Foundations. –Read More about the Soros connection
This is the same Soros who is undermining Israel…
In a bizarre diplomatic development, none other than the state of Israel has branded billionaire philanthropist George Soros, one of Hillary Clinton’s most generous donors, a “threat”, accusing him of “continuously undermining Israel’s democratically elected governments” and saying that Soros-funded organizations “defame the Jewish state and seek to deny it the right to defend itself”.
And his political interference has been explicitly rejected by Hungary.
(We recall that Soros — even if he tries to dress criticism of antisemitic and ‘rooted in Europe’s darkest hours’ — was himself a Nazi collaborator, and called out every time he tries to play that card. In his interview with 60 Minutes, he said of his collaboration, and selling out other Jews:
You hear his amoral pragmatism when he’s asked about that answer. ‘Whether I do it, or somebody else does it, there is really no difference in the outcome. I don’t feel guilty, because I am engaged in an amoral activity which is not meant to have anything to do with guilt.’ –Read More
That’s a lie and we know it. Why do we celebrate people like those Bonhoeffer or those who hid Anne Frank as heroic? Soros knew the RIGHT thing to do, but did not value their lives enough to even REGRET selling them out.
The next time liberals start calling everyone else fascist… remind them who their biggest billionaire contributor is…
We said that to say this.
People getting their funding from Soros, an avowed enemy of everything Trump means when he says ‘MAGA’, are opposing the Commission Trump set up to investigate problems with voter fraud.
Claims of voter fraud — everything from Russian interference (which we seem to hear about every day) as well as domestic rule-breaking are some of the strongest arguments for why this Commission is needed. Here’s a sample headline:
As many as 5.7 million noncitizens may have voted in the 2008 election, which put Barack Obama in the White House.
The research organization Just Facts, a widely cited, independent think tank led by self-described conservatives and libertarians, revealed its number-crunching in a report on national immigration.
So which is it? Are they defending American rights? Or do they know they’ve been gaming the system and don’t want to lose the leverage they’ve got.
