Why do we have an elaborate election security process? Simple. There can be an awful lot at stake depending on who gets elected, both for the candidate and the people depending on his policies.
There is a temptation to cut corners.
Past elections — even American Presidential elections — have had issues with shady people and ballot-stuffing enterprises. We’ve all heard stories about dead people voting, or nursing homes with an ‘amazing’ 100% voting rate. Nothing sketchy there. Honest.
This is why we build various safeguards into our election process… including the use of witnesses or, in some places, voter id.
Republicans have been campaigning on election reform based on the slogan ‘easy to vote, hard to cheat’. It’s a slogan that has not yet, to this writer’s knowledge, had any serious, logical criticism raised against it.
But the left opposes these safeguards at every turn. They fight to keep ‘dirty’ voter rolls, even after losing court injunctions. They fight against voter ID requirements. And in Wisconsin, they were fighting another battle along similar lines.
Any conclusions about what would motivate such opposition we will leave to our readers’ own imagination.
A ruling came down in Wisconsin that the activist left will not like.
A Wisconsin judge rejected an attempt by a left-wing group to allow the counting of invalid absentee ballots on Friday, with the ruling coming ahead of the state’s upcoming fall elections.
Last month, in a case called White v. Wisconsin Elections Commission, plaintiffs supported by the group known as Restoring Integrity and Trust in Elections (RITE) successfully barred local election officials from filling in “missing address information from ballot certifications that must accompany mail-in ballots,” according to a RITE press release obtained by The Federalist.
As mandated by Wisconsin law, “If a certificate is missing the address of a witness, the ballot may not be counted.”
In the Friday court order written by Judge Juan Colas, the Dane County Circuit Court affirmed that based upon the information presented to the court, “the definition of an absentee ballot witness ‘address,’” specifically “that an address is sufficient if it contains a street number, street name and name of municipality, is the status quo and that the requested temporary injunction is unnecessary” and therefore, denied. — TheFederalist
What makes this particular case so interesting?
The other side has a familiar name behind it. It’s the name behind the firm which got ahead in a lot of battleground states in 2020 massaging the rules in the Democrats’ favor. You might recognize it: Marc Elias.
If that name sounds familiar, it should. Not only is he a VERY well-connected Democrat bigwig lawyer, but he is also famous for something else.
He played a role in the Steele Dossier drama.
Surely such a man has only the most honorable intentions with his heavy involvement in changing election processes… right?
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
